1. Memory foam was first developed by NASA engineers in the late 1970’s for pressure relief during space travel. Shortly after its development memory foam began to be applied to the medical industry for its therapeutic properties. It was only in the early 1990’s, however, that was first introduced into the consumer bedding industry, since when it has forever changed the way the world looks at Sleep Systems.
Europedic Memory Foams exclusive properties stem from the unusual features of its cell structure. Unlike standard foams that only partially compress when under pressure, memory foam cells compress fully when pressed and return’s gradually to their original shape on release.
Europedic Memory Foams is also temperature sensitive. This means that at lower temperature it is harder (more viscous), and at higher temperatures it is softer and bouncier (more elastic). This is the reason that memory foam is also known as visco-elastic foam.
